: ' 'While London Sleeps '—II, By a Covent Garden Porter

ONE half of the world, so the platitude runs, has no idea how the other half lives; it is equally true that those whose work occupies normal daytime hours have very little comprehension of the activities that go on while they sleep. Especially is this so in the great cities. In this series of talks men and women of practical experience will describe the life that is lived (in this case in London), while most of us are sleeping. This time the talk will be given by a Covent Garden porter, who will describe the great market during the night and early morning hours.

: Professor W. W. WATTS: How the World

Began-IV; The Continents and the broad foundations on which they are built'
PROFESSOR W. W. WATTS, who is to give the next three talks of this series, is Professor of Geology at the Imperial College of Science and Technology, South Kensington. His talk tonight explains the division of the earth into sea and continent, and the various implications of such an antithesis. Among other points which he will touch upon in the course of this talk is that of the subject of earth pressures and their relief in earthquakes and volcanoes-with particular reference to Vesuvius and Etna and the great volcanoes of Hawaii.

: An Orchestral Concert

DENNIS NOBLE (Baritone)
THE WIRELESS ORCHESTRA
Conducted by JOHN ANSELL
THERE are two rival ladies in the opera, Mignon horself and Filina, the actress. Mignon's best-known number is the song, ' Knowest thou the land ? ' and Filina's is the brilliant air, ' I am Titania ' (tho part which she plays in the Midsummer Night's Dream). These two songs are' the chief ingredients of this popular Overture.
The story, based on Goethe's tale of Wilhelm Meister , is one of those belonging to the romantic age of literature with which the present day has little sympathy. In the hands of Goethe, of course, even so slight and sentimental a story gains something of dignity and importance, but as an opera libretto, in this French form, it ia certainly rather slight. The libretto was made for Ambroise Thomas by Barbier and Carre, who wero responsible also for the text of Gounod's Faust, and it certainly served Thomas well as a vehicle for his melodious and singable music.
Like many a heroine of romance, Mignon ia lost by her parents and adopted by gypsies. She herself has only dim recollections of her early days, and in her famous song describes, as well as she may, her childish memories of a land far other than the one in which she finds herself now.
The other lady offers a striking contrast to the poorly-clad little gypsy maid. As a brilliant actress, feted on all hands, she laughs at the idea that anyone should be seriously interested in the little ragged girl. The story ends, as listeners no doubt remember, with Mignon's restoration to her parents, and in the happiness which the traditions of such a piece demand.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
